In our family, we all have different favorite burgers, so burger night brings to our home some relaxation in the middle of the busy week. We have a lot of fun putting our burgers together and competing for the best variation. All the condiments are spread on the dinner table: from ketchup to mustard and mayo, sautéed mushrooms, roasted peppers, olives, cheeses, tomatoes, sauerkraut, onions to home made burger buns. And the freshly baked buns are spreading the mouth watering aroma from the kitchen to all parts of house. Now the fun begins! Whose burger will be the star tonight?

I will post hamburger bun recipe in one of my future posts.

MY WAY BURGERS (11 patties)
3 cups ground beef
1 small onion
5 garlic cloves
4 banana peppers
2 jalapeno peppers
1 carrot
1 tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
1 tsp cumin      
1 tsp paprika   
¼ tsp chili powder
½ tsp ground ginger     
1 tsp Vegeta
¼ tsp nutmeg
3 tbsp finely chopped parsley

In a food processor, chop onion, garlic, jalapeno and banana peppers. Transfer the chopped veggies into a large bowl. Peel and finely grate the carrot into the same bowl. Add ground beef, salt, black pepper, Vegeta, parsley, and all the spices. Mix to combine.

Take 1/3 of a cup of burger mix at a time and flatten to 4 ½ inch wide patty. You will end with 11 patties.

Grill burger patties on an outside grill or on an inside electric grill until they reach your preferred cooked level.

Build a burger to your liking and enjoy!
